Hi

Both shouldn't be much different both are in dry season. However keep in mind samui is in tropical climates you will / have some odd shower or two as it is the norm though.

Congrats for your up coming wedding :)

Both months have the same weather pattern so it won't make any difference.

Does the high season start back again in August?

Apparently high season starts mid July, around the 15th. This will vary between hotels but it might be worth checking with the hotel that you are having your wedding with. You might get some significant savings if you go for the first two weeks of July.

We stayed over this period last year and both the hotels we were staying at had significant price hikes on the 15th, for example, 5500 baht then up to 7800 baht. Which can really add up for both you and your guests.
